About Hawkwood

Hawkwood Nursery is a 12 acre organic growing and permaculture site on the edge of Waltham Forest, which includes extensive glasshouses, open fields, scrubland, and wooded areas. It has been taken on by Organiclea Community Growers to turn the site over to the production of a wide range of fruit, vegetables and herbs, plants seedlings and training and volunteering opportunities. This blog provides a sideways look at the day to day work of one of Hawkwood’s growers. For information about events, activities, volunteering and location at Hawkwood and the rest of Organiclea’s work, visit our website.

    Best regards
